Make One for Yourself or For a Special Sewing or Quilting Friend!
Not only is this quilt a lovely rendition of a vintage sewing machine, it’s also lighthearted inspiration for when the sewing gets tough. Sometimes it’s all about believing in yourself, especially when trying something new!
The quilt is a lovely and encouraging accent for any sewing room. Or, make it up for a special gift for a sewing or quilting friend.

It will be fun going through your stash to select just the right fabric for each of the pieces. The pattern is designed for hand applique but choose the method you like best. Just be sure to delete seam allowances if you go with fusible applique.
Embroidery, buttons, rick rack and beads add details to this wonderful piece. The designer, Lori Holt, added a pair of scissors to hers and framed the top instead of finishing it into a quilt.
See details of Lori’s version here.
The finished top fits in a 16″ x 20″ frame. That’s also about the size of the finished quilt.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
